Selecting a Base Template
After you log in to SUSE Studio for the first time, you need to select one of the available base templates on which to build your first appliance. A base template determines the operating system your appliance is based on, which packages will be initially selected, and the processor architecture.
Each operating system offers different choices of base templates:
openSUSE 12.1 The current release of openSUSE. Choose from:
- Just enough OS (JeOS), a minimalistic template.
- Server, a text-only system suited for servers, but with a larger imprint than JeOS.
- Minimal X, adding an X server, and preconfigured with IceWM and XDM. This is an ideal template for building on an alternative DM/WM such as LXDE or XFCE.
- GNOME desktop, preconfigured with a minimal GNOME 3.2 desktop and GDM.
- KDE 4 desktop, preconfigured with a minimal KDE 4.7 desktop and KDM.
SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 Contains version 11 with service pack 2 of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Desktop. Base templates include:
- Minimal X,
- GNOME desktop, with GNOME 2.28,
- KDE 4 desktop, with KDE 4.3,
- SLES for VMware, branded for use with VMware servers.
SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4 Contains version 10 with service pack 4 of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and Desktop. SLE10 has a more limited set of base templates:
- GNOME desktop, with GNOME 2.12,
- KDE 3 desktop, with KDE 3.5.
